    In 13 days in a hotel in Copacabana, Robert Scott of Murietta California USA managed to drink approximately 40 caipirinhas per day, then skipped out on his hotel bill. he claimed first that his credit card had been cloned in Rio de Janeiro, then changed the story to say he was ill. After that much drinking he probably was ill:rolleyes: Waiters said he was polite, seemed to be refined, but spent almost all the thirteen days in the hotel bar drinking or ordering more caipirinhas from room service.

    Caipirinhas are delicious, but I could probably only drink 40 in 13 days, not 40 PER day. You know how you get those painful bumps on your tongue after having too much acid? I would be in massive amounts of pain if I tried to best his streak. Not to mention that I'd be poor! (since I wouldn't skip out on a bill)

    I'd never even make 40, perhaps 25, but not more. Maybe Tommy could do it, but they're not made with gin.:p

    One with breakfast, lunch and dinner would get you to 39 easily! Or one with lunch, one with dinner, and one hanging out at the beach after dinner. Totally doable. :D

    How much were those drinks? 40 x 13 = 520 caipirinhas, $4000/520 = $7.70
    Not a terrible price for a hotel bar or for room service, actually! I hope his relatives who bailed him out have a 2-miles per $1 credit card with no foreign exchange fee!
